Great five year Shu Pu-erh
What a fantastic tea! Earthy with smokey, peppery, overtones and yet velvety and somewhat sweet. Great bargain for the price, a real quality tea.
Nancy Nelson said:
I tried the Pu-erh this morning and found it's subtle smokiness and smoothness a great way to start the day.
I have tried other Pu-erh teas, in fact one I bought in Hong Kong at a tea museum and found them sometimes to be harsh tasting.
I preferred yours!

Organic Pu-Erh tea from Golden Moon
I usually don't drink Pu-Erh tea, prefer Jasmine green tea, but his Pu-Erh is well balanced and tasty.
JO HANIFORD said:
delicious and smooth
Love this organic tea. It has a lovely flavor and great caffeine as well.. I sometimes mix it with chai spices and use the Pu-Erh as the black tea component. Really delicious.
Mike A said:
I've been sampling a lot of pu'erh teas lately, as I am new to this type of tea. This one tastes excellent. I actually enjoyed drinking it. Keeps you interested with each sip. And its organic?!!

I am very satisfied with the product
Thank you for this tea. It really is pu-erh . tea
String earthy flavor
Thomas Landon said:
I first tried a bagged pu-erh tea several years ago and liked it. Then I found Golden Moon Tea and looked no further. This pu-erh tea is so good I want it every morning! But the other ten varieties of GM tea in the cupboard cry out for equal time. Can't go wrong with any choice. Thank you.

Like no other tea
Puerh is a special tea. It has been fermented more than other black teas ans has an earthy taste wich I find unique.

My cup of tea
This is my “go to” tea. The first time I ordered this, I didn’t know what to expect. When it was super dark after preparing, I was a little concerned about how strong tasting it would be. Instead, it was distinctly smooth. I drink this about every morning. I would love to try other Pu-erh varieties. Marcus, I hope that you can add additional Pu-erh teas. Thanks for providing teas free from chemicals and additives.

Roberta Smith said:
Tea with respect: I have sampled many teas over the course of my life, and have ended up with my two favorites: pu-erh and Sinharajah. My day is just not the same without the start of one of these tees, which depends on my morning mood as to my selection of the day.. I appreciate the good service, personal and prompt attention to my questions. Aloha
Kamron Dillard said:
Was not a fan
I didn't particularly enjoy the Pu-erh but it's my very first Pu-erh I've ever tried so it's possible I just don't like Pu-erh tea.
Bruce Huyghue said:
Puerh chai tea
The thing I like most about Moon Tea is the variety of teas they offer. I have tried so many and found very few that are true favorites. The exception is Puerh chai tea. It is a full bodied, dark tea with a unique flavor that I just can’t put my finger on. I have it so often, my wife thinks I’m addicted to it. I recommend it to any tea lover has one that you must at least Try. 💆♂️
Amy Denniston said:
When I gave up coffee I experimented with different varieties of tea and pu-erh came out as my favorite by a long shot. It's earthy and rich and a great start to the day. Being able to buy in bulk is quite useful given how quickly I go through it.
I love Golden Moon's Pu-erh tea. It's rich and earthy. I like it brewed as dark as a cup of coffee. The boost is just what I need in the mornings, and I always start my day with a mug full!
Mariana Ferrari said:
Excellent quality and flavor
Highly recommend this tea and brand. Tastes clean. Flavor is delicious.
I like your pu-erh tea as it has an earthiness that contrasts with the floral tippy earl grey. The tones of hay and soil make it great for when a full bodied tea is what you're in the mood for.
Beth L said:
Satisfying daytime tea for a coffee drinker
I like full flavor, smoothness and some mouthfeel to my warm drinks. I have enjoyed this Pu-erh, which is now part of my "tea cupboard canon." I like that it has layers of flavor. I like that it brews over and over with a satisfying taste. I read a reviewer who blended it with another of my favorites, Lapsang Souchong, and totally agree!! This is the way I've been enjoying the two teas since my recent purchase. Thanks, Golden Moon, for worry free teas!
Pu-Ehr is obviously part of the Golden Moon family of teas.
I have noticed a strong similarity in the basic characteristics of your teas.
Most seem to convey the same smoothness, moderate strength, lower tannin (except the (French Breakfast), and a comfortable drinkability.
There is often a single flavor or a few closely related flavors that distinguish each tea from the others.
The Pu-ehr has the usual distinct "barnyard" qualities in aroma and taste on top of these same core characteristics.
It is more like the Sinharaja than any of the other teas.
The Lapsang has the biting smokiness, French Breakfast has a tannic roughness, Sinharaja has an odd fruitiness, Jasmine Pearls the floral addition, and the Darjeeling is more vegetal.
The Earl Grey has more young Tips leaves than the others, which gives it an extra bit of crisp smoothness.
David Hansen said:
great tea at a fair price
The Golden Moon loose leaf pu-erh is a winner. I will buy this again for sure!

Ordering through this Company was a pleasure. I'm happy with all the treas I ordered. The product is "clean".

Amazing Pu Erh
I ordered 4 different teas from Golden Moon Tea and love them all!!! The aged pu-erh is amazing and I highly recommend it! I make a strong brew in the morning with many subsequent rebrews and It is very rich and full-bodied. I feel that the subsequent rebrews extract more of the l-theanine which has a calming effect and it helps me sleep deeply through the night. I am in love with pu erh and this is a very good organic one which I will repurchase after I finish my one-pound bag :D
The Budget Tea
IF u want to reduce the earthy, umami taste that pu-ehrs are known for, then add some Irish black to it. Find a ratio that fits your tastebuds. The only thing w/ this pu-ehr is I don't know if you can reseep this tea, info doesn't say anything about it. Of all the pu-ehrs I've had, you can reseep tea at least ~5-6x & the teabag says so. That's the most unique thing w/ pu-ehrs & they don't go bitter. It stays smooth & tasty. If your on a budget, than pu-erhs are the tea to buy b/c you can reseep & they NEVER expire. In fact, the longer it sits in your cup board, the better.
My wife and I have drank Pu Erh tea daily for many years now. A great tea with great health benefits! This Pu Erh is one of the best we have had to date!
KARIN BIRD said:
I look forward to my cup every day
I love this puerh tea - I have tried several different brands - and drink it daily. I also make sure I never run out of this one - it's a favorite!
Kasha Breau said:
It was not what I expected. The first brew of the few cups had a fishy taste to it. I’ll try rinsing the leaves first next time. The second brew was better. The third brew had the earthy flavor.
Victoria L. said:
I love this pu-erh tea! It's a soothing treat that I enjoy. It's rich and has a special aroma. I like it with a little stevia or honey and a milk alternative or half and half alternative. I'd encourage anyone who likes black tea to try it. My husband is Chinese and his mother said pu-erh is good for digestion.
I ordered the Puerh tea because Golden Moon tweeted an article about this tea helping with metabolic syndrome. As a hyperglycemic, I found that drinking this tea every day clinically (and measurably) lowered my blood sugar to the point where I stopped needing medication and have adapted to a low carb lifestyle. The taste is not for everyone, but I have benefited greatly.
Fernando Romero said:
Last time we bought tea was from a farm source in China. We know it's grown using farming practices that ensure a high quality black tea. Enjoy a cup avery afternoon!
love the pu erh ,also love the Moroccan mint in the sampler i ordered ,will definitely be buying more very soon.i highly recommend goldenmoon teas to anyone looking for great tea
Heather Harrell said:
This is a full-bodied earthy tea that is totally satisfying, especially if you need a transition away from coffee. It is truly a great quality and delicious Pu-erh.
vicki ibarra said:
I discovered pu-erh while living in china a few years ago and fell in love. After returning home I have tried many different brands. My son sent me a can of Golden Moon pu-erh for Christmas last year. It is by far my favorite.
Tim Ballard said:
My Favorite Tea
This is my favorite tea. I love the flavor and smell combo. The musty earthy taste is strong, but not overpowering. On top of that the leaves are good for 2 or 3 uses before becoming to watered down. If you're new to tea, then you should know that region effects taste the same way it effects wine. Pu-erh is named after a city in Yunnan China where they grow this tea. The region is mountainous, with high levels of iron in the soil, and fed by water carrying minerals from the Himalayas. Combined with the aging techniques they use, it gives a very unique flavor, and one that I absolutely love.
Donald Towner Jr said:
Quite possibly one of the best teas I have ever had.
Ernie Podaril said:
Nice inviting flavor...
Very fine flavor and wonderful consistency!
Pu-erh Chai - EXCELLENT
I only tried this tea because of the article about using it in a Chai recipe. I finally tried it yesterday and loved it! Thanks so much.
Barbara Russell said:
This Pu-erh tea is very good and I really like it. Also like Golden Moon's teas as they are pure tea and do not have the metallic taste that many tea companies tea has. Service and shipping is fast and great also!
Susan Busbice said:
I have loved Pu-erh for many years. Golden Moon's high standards are well above the general market fare. This Pu-erh has a earthy and smooth flavor that demands to be taken seriously.
Dee Warren said:
Fantastic Puerh, add a pinch of Irish Breakfast and your ready for your day.
Jon W said:
Superb taste, very smooth
An absolutely excellent Puerh. I add a touch of Stevia, and the flavor is very smooth, tasty, and of a very high quality. I'm glad I bought a pound of it!
Jyl DeHaven said:
a great tea to start your morning.
RICK TIBBEN said:
When my regular tea supplier dropped Pu Ehr tea, I found it at Golden Moon. Excellent tea that you can double infuse. Pu Ehr is a very hearty tea and this loose leaf variety is one of the best I have ever tried.
G H said:
This has been my first time trying Pu-erh. I found the smell very enjoyable! The taste is very rich and a bit complicated to describe. With each taste I can find new descriptions: earthy, rich, bold, firm, pleasant. It almost reminds me of a mushroom tea, which is quite good! I am enjoying this tea!
Summer H said:
I have tried quite a few Pu-erh’s and most of them are lacking flavor, richness and are just plain bad. This Pu-ehr it’s amazing! It has the earthy flavor and richness I have come to love in my tea. This tea isn’t for everyone but it is definitely in my top 5!
Jen R. said:
I love this Pu-Ehr!
I “discovered” Pu-Ehr tea about a year ago. I had read about it’s health benefits and wanted to try it. I got some tea bags (organic) and liked it a lot but it was hard to find in local shops and the few types I tried were good but inconsistent. When I saw Golden Moon Tea has Pu-Ehr I ordered some. I love it!!! It’s rich and smooth and the flavor is so good. It has the fermented smell which I like but some people may find weird but I urge you to get past the smell if you don’t like it because it’s such a good tea flavor. This is my favorite tea. A tip- I ordered the spoon so I’d get the right amount of loose leaves in each pot. It helped makes every pot the same. Definitely worth a few dollars more!
Great tasting tea
This is a fabulous tasting tea and easy to brew!
Ann Mattiucci said:
I will not buy my tea anywhere else! Great product and customer service!
Pu era tea
Delicious! I add some cloves and cinnamon and cardamom. Sometimes milk for a chai latte.
Amelia Burns said:
I love pu-erhs and this one is quite lovely--earthy with a subtle sweetness as well.
Joan Madden said:
Best tea ever!
Pu-reh is the best tasting black tea. No sweetener needed!

great product great service
Christianna Hogue said:
Always great tasting tea (I liken it to coffee without the bitterness). And super fast service, thank you!
jennifer mccandless said:
I enjoy this tea as much as an avid coffee drinker enjoys a cup of their favorite morning brew. It is a staple in our home.
Alex Hurdzan said:
I was expecting the flavor to be way more intense, I didn't know what to expect but I do love to brew beer and make other fermented things. It has a nice, mild, fermented, umami flavor that just comes across as a nice black tea with a slight fermented note.
Mary W said:
Rich earthy tea
Very dark rich tea. Wonderful with alittle organic honey and iced for a summer pick me up. Even my husband enjoyed it iced.
Deb R said:
Mild but fishy
The flavor was good - mild black tea (I drank it straight to get an idea of the flavor without cream or sugar or anything). However, it had a 'fishy' aroma that wasn't pleasant. I had both my husband and son try a bit and while they liked the taste, the smell was off-putting. Guess the fermented-ness just isn't our cup of tea
ANITA FLANTZ said:
This is a mild Pu-erh that is brewed without the rinsing that is necessary for the Pu-erh in cakes. A tea to drink all day long.
Jessica Rowan said:
Tasty and Different
I really enjoyed this tea with it's darker flavor.
Bozena Roberts said:
When I read the reviews about this tea I found out the one either loves it or not, nothing in between. I decided to order it anyway and give it a try. I love it. I love it’s earthy flavor and scent. It was a good choice for me, however it may not be for everyone.
Laurie Brown said:
One for me, one for a gift
I've heard people say that Pu-erh is an acquired taste, but not so for me... I liked it from the very first cup. Rich, deeply flavored brew that pairs well with milk (dairy or other), and I occasionally add honey for a treat. Golden Moon used to sell a pu-erh chai (several years ago) that I loved, so adding the chai spices is another idea. Usually, though, I brew it strong and add a dash of milk. Delicious!
I was skeptical...
Fermented Tea? I thought could that be good? It couldn't right? I gave it a try. Nothing ventured nothing gained and boy am I glad I did. WOW!!! Fermented tea where have you been? I found a new favorite tea. I expected a sour taste but that was not the case. This tea was complex and satisfying. It's now my afternoon pick me up.
April McGlothin said:
This is my favorite tea for my morning cuppa all winter long. I love the richness and earthy notes. No tea stands up against it. Golden Moon is one the only tea companies who sells it. I've bought it multiple times, and I have been happy with their service.
Marie Cogdill said:
My daughter recently discovered this tea, so I ordered it for her. She said this is the best of this type of tea she's ever had
Sara Jo said:
Pu-ehr, my morning go to tea...
I've been drinking Golden Moon's Pu-erh for years and it remains my all time favorite morning tea. I get 2-3 steeps from 5 teaspoons. I love that GM has gone totally organic, too!
Cherise Emerson said:
Before finding this company, I had to,drive at least 50 miles to find this tea that I do enjoy and have for years. I love the health benefits and the fact that it is a high quality,organic variety. I add cardamom and cinnamon at times to make my on chai and will be ordering again.
Faith Welsh said:
smooth and robust
I like Pu-erh for it's earth taste. I found I can infuse this tea more than once ( something I don't have very good luck with usually). It makes a really nice ice tea with lemon and honey.
Nice, smooth flavor. not the very best Pu-erh I've ever had (longer aged and in small "cakes"), but decent for the price. I like it especially well for digestion after meals.
Judith Kersun said:
Good and really good!
I ordered Pu erh other day and received it quickly as promised. It is excellent! I first had this tea in China and have usedit ever since. Golden Moon is an excellent source and i will continue to order my tea from them. S

My go to tea for relaxation & meditation . .
I never heard of pu-erh tea before until I watch the documentary "All In This Tea".
I was intrigued by the thought of an aged tea. I was also unaware of how mild a black tea could be, because other black teas I have tasted before were bitter and sharp.
I do not know where some of the other reviewers here get the idea the pu-erh tea smells or taste like rotten fish, it has an earthly, mild aroma which is why I like it for relaxation and meditation.
Of course everyone has their preferences so other reviewers who have expressed their feelings about the aroma may decide to choose another tea. I prefer to order tea pu-erh tea over most others because of the simple, plain, earthy aroma and taste.
I also am looking forward to my regular order with Golden Moon Tea. I was like other reviewers here who found pu-erh tea but later wanted to get more & could not, I do not want to be without again.
Daily Tea Drinker said:
Strong Smell of Dead Fish
Apparently some reviewers like this tea but I don't understand why. I guess it's a matter of taste.
Only once in our decades of drinking tea had we dumped a pot of tea as undrinkable, until this one. We found the strong smell of rotting fish to be overwhelming. The taste was just a unpleasant. Color was nice and dark. Unless you know this tea and like it, you should avoid it.
Bruce Huyghue said:
I originally found pu-erh Chai tea in a Home Goods store. I brewed and drank the tea in two weeks. When I went back for more, I was told that they did not always have that brand of tea. They bought odd lots of various tea brands. I went to the internet and found Pu-erhs web site. I ordered several different teas. They were all really clean, full flavored and I enjoyed each one.
Patrick Gerkey said:
My wife and I are enjoying our tasty Pu-erh tea. It is very refreshing and smells good also. We will buy it again when our ½ pound is getting low.
